BENTON HARBOR, Mich., Nov. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Between pre-heating, thawing, boiling and baking, cooking can be a time-consuming and overwhelming daily task. Since it's also such an important part of the care that families give to one another every day, Whirlpool® brand has introduced its sleek new Premium Slide-In Electric and Gas Ranges, to help in the kitchen by cutting preheat time.
To reduce cooking preparation steps, the new slide-in range features Frozen Bake™ technology that skips the preheat and cooks frozen favorites faster1. Whirlpool® brand's new range, available as electric or gas, boasts true convection cooking that helps seal in flavor and juices with perfect results in less time2 than non-convection ovens.
When it comes to getting the right range, space can often be an issue. That's why the range's flexible installation FIT system design allows it to fit in both slide-in or freestanding existing kitchen cutout spaces, without remodeling. Although this full-depth range slides seamlessly into almost any countertop cutout3, it is also designed with finished sides for a premium look in any standalone space.
"Our new technology is always inspired by the way we care every day," said Jon Hall, senior brand manager, Whirlpool Corporation. "We outfitted our newest slide-in range with purposeful features that are meaningful and practical for families."
Other care components include:
These care components are all a part of the brand's recently launched advertising campaign, Every day, care™, which shows that behind every chore is an act of love. For more information, visit whirlpool.com/everydaycare or join the #EveryDayCare conversation at twitter.com/whirlpoolusa.
The 6.2 cu ft Premium Slide-In Electric Range with True Convection (WEE760H0D) and 5.8 cu ft Premium Slide-In Gas Range (WEG760H0D) is now available online and in-store at retailers nationwide in White Ice, Stainless Steel and Black Ice, with a starting MSRP of $1,949.00 for electric and $1,849.00 for gas.
